    Default Carrying in Delaware

    I have a question about carrying in Delaware. I read in the past Delaware will not recognize any non resident carry permit. I'm a PA resident with a PA LTCF, no other carry permit. Is there anyway I can carry in Delaware? I heard open carry is fine, including in car. I'm planning to do some shopping there with the family.

    Hi Will, you have received bad information, as DE recognizes multiple states.

    I lived in DE for 31 years (held the DE Special License while there), just recently moving back to PA.

    I obtained a Utah non-resident to be able to once again carry in DE (a 4 hour class, very simple).

    I will attach the information direct from the DE AJ/DOJ page which spells it all out.

    Good luck in your search!

    PS, I am originally from H'dale!

    In a car in DE, and without a recognized LTCF/CCW, the firearm must be on the dash or on the passenger seat.

    Florida or Arizona non-resident will also work in Delaware. If you have a DD-214, you can skip the training class.

    Yes, as stated multiple states are recognized but DE.

    I guess the link I posted isn*t able to be seen(?) so I*ll post this, the list of recognized states from the DE AG/DOJ page.

    I see, how does the gun stay on the dash though, wouldnt it drop or get lost somewhere if you was to brake hard?

    Be advised, local ordinances prohibiting OC or requiring a permit to OC are still in effect if they were enacted prior to preemption being enacted, unless the municipality has since struct such measurements. DE's preemption law grandfathers prior local ordinances.


    Also, you would have to stay more than 1000FT from any school per federal law.

    Which municipality are you referring to?

    The only one I was aware of, was Dover, which is no longer true/correct.

    Perhaps there is somewhere that I was unaware of, as I never Open Carried in DE, the 31 years I lived there.
